The Owls Approve Blog Hop: Ermagherd

It's almost Archie's birthday! Just a few more great blogging questions from Beka to go! This week she asks:

What is your pony's absolute favorite riding activity? What makes those little ears perk and causes the knees to lift?

I'm sad that it took me several years to discover it, but going XC is Dino's absolute most favorite thing in the entire world! 

the happiest!
While he does really like jumping in the ring and heading out on a trail ride, combining the two make my pony so very, very happy. 

jumping banks LIKE A BOSS.

His ears are up the whole time. 


He prances around and shows off his moves. 

and, you know, levitating himself over large logs when I bury him at the base...
He's relaxed, and interested, and into what he's doing, and you can just feel the happiness radiating out of him! Until we went XC for the first time, I had never felt such happy, positive energy coming from my pony. And this is why I had to put on my big girl pants and start eventing. 


  1. Yay Dino, he looks blissed out in those pictures!!

    1. HE IS! Everyone who's around me when we go XC is probably sick of me saying "GUY'S HE'S SO HAPPY! LOOK HOW HAPPY HE IS! HE'S SO HAPPYYYYYY!"

    2. hah hah! We need to ride together, then we can annoy everyone with our shouts of pony awesomeness!

  2. yep - i feel the same way!! yay for happy horses:)

  3. Love the pictures - so happy!

  4. That's awesome that you do it to make him happy! :D You guys definitely look like you're having fun. I wish I had the guts to try it at least once.
